Revealed: Why Adam Wharton's brother isn't allowed to fly to Germany for Euro 2024... but it hasn't stopped him from taking a mammoth road trip to support the Crystal Palace star

Adam Wharton was an unused substitute in England's victory over Serbia His brother, Scott, has embarked on a road trip to Germany to cheer him on LISTEN to It's All Kicking Off! Were England good in their opener or is the criticism fair? 

Adam Wharton's brother has embarked on a mammoth road trip to Germany to support him during England's Euro 2024 campaign this summer.

Crystal Palace youngster Wharton caught the eye after a series of impressive displays in midfield last season and was named in the Three Lions' final 26-man squad under Gareth Southgate. He may make his competitive debut this month.

Just several months ago, Wharton, aged only 20, had been plying his trade alongside his old sibling, Scott, at Blackburn Rovers in the Championship.

Scott is currently recovering from extensive knee surgery and was advised by doctors that he was not able to jet out to Germany to watch Adam in action.

But that hasn't stopped him from finding a workaround with Adam instead embarking on a lengthy road trip taking him across the continent.

'I can't fly for two months and it's been six weeks,' Scott said, via ITV Granada.

'So me and my partner we're driving to Hull to catch the ferry to Rotterdam and then drive into Dusseldorf, where we're staying for the first game.

'So it's more of a road trip, I'm looking forward to it!'

Adam, just like his brother, progressed through the academy at Blackburn.

Wharton joined Palace during the winter transfer window in a move worth £22.5million and went on to make 16 top-flight appearances last season.

Despite playing just 30 minutes for England in a friendly, having been introduced as a substitute against Bosnia, Southgate included the youngster in his Euros group.

'Honestly I feel just like a proud dad,' Scott added. 'The family obviously is massively proud of him, of how far he's come in such a short space of time.

'At the start of season, I don't think anyone would have predicted what's happened to him.

'So the fact that he's coming on for England, playing with some of the best players in the world is just incredible.'
